Harris may skip 1st test citing personal reasons

The 1st test between India and Australia was due to start on Thursday at the Gabba in Brisbane, but was delayed due to Hughes freak on-field accident last week and left players emotionally shattered, James Sutherland, on Tuesday said that it was too early to say which players would be mentally ready for the rescheduled Test series against India as mourners began arriving for Hughes funeral. Australia's four-Test series will now begin in Adelaide on December 9. One of Australia's premier fast bowlers, Ryan Harris, has already said that he isn't sure about playing in the first Test at Adelaide. "I am thinking about it and I am not sure. I have lost my mother before and I was pushed to play by my father and my brother and it probably helped," Harris said."However, this will be tough for some boys and it is going to be tough for me too. I will have to work it out when I get to Adelaide and see how we all feel. The boys who were there and witnessed what happened” he added. Cricket Australia will talk about this with BCCI and will take decision.
